Barcelona players attend Lionel Messi's barbecue party, is it goodbye?


In a rare glimpse into their personal lives outside the football pitch, Barcelona players reportedly gathered for a barbecue party at club captain Lionel Messi’s house on Monday. With just four matches remaining in the La Liga season, could this be Messi’s early farewell party with what could possibly be his soon-to-be ex-teammates?

The gathering came after the squad attended a recovery training session following their crucial 3-2 victory over Valencia on Sunday night. The win at the Mestalla Stadium kept them within striking distance of the La Liga trophy, as they now stand just two points behind leaders Atletico Madrid.

Atletico currently holds 76 points, with both Barcelona and Real Madrid just two points behind with 74. On Saturday, the Blaugrana have the opportunity to knock Atletico out of the top spot when they face each other at the Camp Nou.
